    2. Silicon Carbide (SiC) FET Design Tips for Fast Switching

    Silicon carbide (SiC) FETs have great potential to improve power density, efficiency and cost-effectiveness. However, power loop stray inductance requires special attention to fully exploit the fast-switching capability of SiC FETs. This webinar demonstrates why a simple RC snubber is a superior solution in this challenge. Design tips and guidance on selection of RC snubber value and snubber loss analysis will be included as well.

    3. An Overview of the FET-Jet Calculator for Power Designs

    Qorvo’s FET-Jet Calculator is valuable early in the design cycle. Near-instant results allow fast evaluation of many topology and UnitedSiC device options. For most topologies, the calculator uses closed-form equations to estimate the power loss of each device in the circuit, drawing from a database of device characteristics to arrive at power semiconductor efficiency and operating temperature estimates. This webinar shows how device data are extracted from online datasheets, how calculations are made and the differences between modulation methods for certain topologies.

    4. Field-Oriented Control for Tri-Phase BLDC/PMSM Motor Application

    Controlling a tri-phase brushless DC (BLDC) / permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) using field-oriented control (FOC) is becoming more and more popular given the superior performance in minimizing torque ripple and extending speed operating range. Embedded programing on a microcontroller (MCU) is a common choice to implement FOC-related features and functionality, plus satisfy each individual application requirement while optimizing the overall solution.  In this session, we will focus on Qorvo’s unique IPs and field-oriented control algorithms aimed at addressing your unique challenges that require a more sophisticated form of control.

    5. The Qorvo Acoustic Difference: Solving Complex 5G with Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW)

    New cellular, Wi-Fi, Ultra-Wideband (UWB), non-terrestrial networks (NTN) and other standards increase the demands on an already complicated cellular RF front-end. This, coupled with more handset features and novel industrial design, requires higher performance [lower insertion loss, higher coexistence and out-of-band (OOB rejection)], smaller size and more complex product integration. Qorvo’s latest Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) technologies enable these new features, form-factors and bands while improving the performance of an already complex system. Hear how to optimize your design with BAW.
